The following description is directly relevant to prone rifle shooting, but the process is similar for the other disciplines,

New members, even those that might have shot before, have to undertake a series of instruction sessions, usually held over 4 to 6 weekends. Although some might have knowledge of the material covered from their previous experience, it is important to get new members to a basic level of safety and competency before they fend for themselves on a normal club session. 

The courses usually take up half a day each weekend for between 4 and 6 weeks. Typically, there might be 4 people attending each course. They use a combination of theory and practical sessions to ensure that participitants reach a standard of competance where they can organise their own shooting safely and without disrupting other members. Courses cover the following topics:-

  • Safe handling of firearms
  • Range Rules
  • Range Ettiquette
  • Equipment and Clothing
  • Sighting and Aiming
  • Trigger Control
  • Breathing
  • The Prone Position
  • Grouping shots on the target

Once this course has been successfully completed, the new shooter will be sufficiently proficient that they can attend the club on a normal session and mix in with other members without needing any special consideration. Club coaches continue to keep an eye on each new shooter's progress and will offer advice and practical coaching as required.

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept any more new members for the time being due to the anticipated closure of our facilities to make way for the construction of HS2. If/when we are in a position to accept new members again we will post a notice here inviting you to contact us.
